A Race for Refuge

If you had wings, imagine flapping them for 500 miles nonstop, over water. Bird migration across the Gulf of Mexico is rigorous and ventured twice a year. Their springtime journey can be met with tempestuous rainstorms and high winds, creating hazards they must avoid. Coastal lands of Texas are often the first they encounter and provide refuge for tired and hungry migrants. Preservation of coastal habitat is vital to this successful journey for thousands of tiny avian gems.
